Area Fada - Charles Boy Oputa has a word for you all as Valentine Day approaches...

Few days to valentines day and some lady out there is arrested in her thought.In her thought she has this running in her mind " I don't have a lover, I don't think any man will want to buy me gifts or take me out on that day' My special advice for you long lady "KNOCK IT OFF"!!!!!!! Don't let that thought make you feel like a crap. Valentines gift and outing doesn't validate how cute, sexy and appreciated you are lady.

Take away that mind set from your beautiful soul because the worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself.No matter how you feel, GET UP, DRESS UP, SHOW UP AND NEVER GIVE UP. I hope this speak to any lady out there who feels like a loner, Be your #WCW

Davido, Baby Mamas And Other Stories - Reuben Abati

David Adeleke (Davido) and his Baby Mama Sophie Momodu

“What a relief, my friend!”
“What are you relieved about?”
“It is this David Adeleke and Sophia Momodu soap opera”.
“I tell you. It is a perfect subject for a good home video. But what is your own?”
“No. Nothing. I am just relieved that the parties involved have agreed to let peace reign”
“This will be about the third time I would hear of that matter being resolved.”
“Well, I think the Momodus and the Adelekes should just spare us. They should not forget there is a child involved. 
They have suddenly made Imade Adeleke, the most famous victim of Baby Mama-Baby Papa palaver in Nigeria. 
Both Davido and Sophia and their supporters’ clubs should please protect the baby, and not make her a poster child for that kind of subject.”

Reuben Abati
“But me, I am enjoying the story oh.”
